The latest-generation Honda CR-V continues to prove its credentials as the world’s most popular SUV, is named ‘Best Car Launched Last Year’ in the Auto Trader New Car Awards 2019.

The Auto Trader New Car Awards collated feedback from a survey of more than 60,000 car owners. The CR-V was ranked highest by real owners for comfort and cost of servicing, thanks to the option of a 5 year service plan for £599 (inc. VAT) on all brand new Honda models. They were also ranked with a high score for durability and safety to reflect the models recent 5-star Euro NCAP rating and comprehensive suite of Honda Sensing™ active safety technologies as standard.

Beating off competition from some big names, Honda CR-V owners were impressed by the quality of the interior, with its new sleek design and contemporary, sophisticated trim. The in-car features and accessories were also cited, as the CR-V offers enhanced intuitive operation and full, seamless smartphone integration via both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, said: “The Honda CR-V has won best car launched in the last year because of the quality of its interior and the features and accessories that come with the car. Owners were impressed with the amount of space, seat position and visibility and it ranked top in areas including comfort, cost of servicing and repairs, durability and how safe it feels to drive.

Phil Webb, Head of Car at Honda UK, commented; “The Auto Trader New Car Awards are a real stamp of approval from people that live with the car day-in, day-out, and we’re proud that the CR-V marks itself out as a true consumer champion. In the incredibly competitive SUV marketplace, this award is another reason for the new CR-V to stand out from its rivals. A big thank you to everyone who responded to the survey.
